Innovative desalination system using renewable energy
Water scarcity is a growing problem in the modern world. Europe in general and the Mediterranean region in particular are already facing problems related to the low availability of water. As 40 % of the EU population lives in coastal areas, seawater is a potential source of drinking water. However, desalination technologies are expensive with high energy costs. The EU-funded W2W - Water to Water project will promote an innovative desalination system that uses renewable energy and provides clean water from seawater or salty groundwater. The system is mobile and easy to deploy even in humanitarian aid and disaster relief operations.
